  • Comparative Genomics Course.Last Call

    Dear all,



    we have the last places available for our course on "Comparative Genomics" (1-5 October 2018) at the Freie Universität Berlin, Königin-Luise-Straße 6-8, Berlin (Germany).



    Application deadline is September 5th, 2018. Attendees are seated on a first-come, first-served basis.









    Our instructors are :








    Dr Fritz J. Sedlazeck (https://fritzsedlazeck.github.io/)

    Prof. Dr. Ingo Ebersberger (https://scholar.google.com/citations...3kYAAAAJ&hl=en)




    Course overview


    This course will introduce biologists and bioinformaticians into the field of comparative genomics. Different techniques will be introduced to identify single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and structural variations (SVs) as well as the annotation of these variations and the assessment for their functional impact.



    TARGETED AUDIENCE & ASSUMED BACKGROUND

    The course is aimed at researchers interested in learning how to compare genomes and what can be learned from genomic similarities as well as variations. It will include information useful for both beginners and more advanced users. We will start by introducing general concepts of comparative genomics. On this basis, we will then continue to describe all major analysis steps from the raw sequencing data via the identification of variations to an assessment of their impact on the phenotype.

    Attendees should have a background in biology. There will be a mix of lectures and hands-on practical exercises using command line Linux. We will therefore dedicate one session to introduce basic and advanced Linux concepts for processing data on Amazon cloud (AWS). Attendees should have also some familiarity with genomic data such as that arising from NGS sequencing experiments.



    LEARNING OUTCOMES



    Identification of SNPs and SVs using de novo genome assembly and read mapping strategies
    Assessment of strengths and weaknesses of the different DNA sequencing technologies, Illumina, Pacific Bioscience, Oxford Nanopore, for the detection of variations
    Strengths and pitfalls of de novo assembly and mapping approaches for comparative genomics
    Hands on experience of state of the art methods to compare multiple genomes
    Annotation of variations and comparative genomics analysis

    Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
    by seqadmin



    While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
